January 11 Create with Red, Pink, Green,& Yellow

PhotobucketI really love making flowers!!!  I created these flowers for a swap I was in. Once I got started it was really hard to stop! 

I used the Mother's Day Bouquet cricut cartridge to make all of my flowers.  I don't remember which flowers I used but I tried using a few different ones.   I cut 3 of each size: 2", 1 1/2", and 1" per design.

Next I used my Stampin Up! ink pads to ink the edges of each flower cut. Then I used my hole punch and punched holes in the middle of all the flower sizes then used a brad to hold them all together.  Using a water bottle I sprayed the flower and crumpled each layer.  After the last layer was done I opened the flower and let it dry.  My last step was to add some touches of stickles to each flower.

This was such a fun process and I love how they turned out!!  Thanks for coming by and taking a look at my project!! Here is my friend Cassie's blog, I got some great inspiration from her flower tutorial

Tuesday-- Card day- Using the I-Top

My Cricut Craft Room Welcome back to my blog!! So glad you stopped by!!

It is card creating Tuesday over at My Cricut Craftroom's blog! Today's project was a challenge for me!!  I have had my I-top for awhile. I have not used it yet because I am a little confused on how to work it!! It took me a few trys but it finally worked.. I think I will make sure to watch the DVD that came with it!!

I used Mother's Day bouquet to create the flower I can't remember which flower I used. Then I colored the flower all over with the brush side of a Chocolate Chip Stampin Up! marker before I sprayed the flower with water and crumpled it up.  Then I uncrumpled it and let it dry.  I used paper from the Crafty Stack DCWV to cut the background of my card & the center of the flower. I cut the shape from the cardstock for the center of the flower and used the I-Top to create my own brad to use in the middle of the flower. I used a Stampin Up! sentiment stamp and the Chocolate Chip marker. (I didn't have the ink pad so I used the brush side of the marker).  I also used brown striped floss. I really like the look of the brown with the orange!  Please check out My Cricut Craftroom's blog for more great card ideas!
